Maps of Irun - Bilbao


New Member
Hi Everyone,

Me and my girlfriend are beginning the camino del norte on 7th June. It will be our first Camino.

I was just wondering if anyone could recommend a good walking map of route. We will be walking from Irun to Bilbao, in 7-10 days depending if we want to stop off anywhere on the way for a rest! We have the CSJ guide book but I am not confident that this is very good, and am much better with maps than written directions.

Any suggestion would be most welcome.

Today is our second day walking and I will admit both guides we have, CSJ and the Spanish one have been wrong on some occasions. That or I lost my skills at guide reading, but honestly we have had a couple of hard days: getting lost yesterday and freezing rainy cold today. We are wet and very very sore and tired. Still, loving it!

Hey Lillian,

Great to hear how you are getting on.. I'll be walking the del Norte in September, so I'll be looking forward to reading your updates.

Have a safe and fun Camino.

Thanks for your replies everyone.

I was also wondering if anyone had found a map that they could use on the walk - a kind of equivalent to Ordnance Survey maps in the UK?
